The Big Day - Biggest Part?

I'm a bit curious to see just what everyone is most looking forward to on their big day. Ours is just about 2 weeks away and up until today I've been too focused on the actual planning to think about what I would enjoy most the day of. Personally, I think I've figured out that I am most looking forward to our first dance...because over the past few weeks we've been teaching ourselves a dance, and while we've fumbled a lot along the way, it feels important because we've worked together to put so much effort into it. Those practices have been a lovely escape from the monotony of work, planning, cleaning, etc, and I am starting to feel like it will be a much needed escape on the day of. Because he'll be the center of my whole attention...the only one that matters and we will (hopefully) be more at ease then since its something we've put so much time into practicing while the rest of it is kind of a 'we have a general idea but mostly it will be whatever happens happens'. So, all that being said, I'm wondering if anyone else is feeling something similar about other parts of their big day? Or if there is just a part of the wedding proceedings that someone has been looking forward to for as long as they could remember? I'm curious what it is that most excites others about their big day! Please spill! I wanna hear it all!! Smiley smile Smiley heart Smiley ring

    I'm already married, but the absolute BEST part of our day was just being together. We did a first look and hands down that was the best decision we made. I LOVED getting to see him, just the two of us (and the photographer who was far away) and have those few moments of peace and aloneness before the craziness of the wedding. We also drove to the church together in our car, alone. We just got to spend so much time together, instead of waiting for so long to see each other and then being pulled into so many directions by family/friends. Our "love language" is touch and quality time. I would have regretted not seeing him until the wedding and then spending all night catering to seeing other people instead of truly getting to be with each other.

    I know weddings are hectic, so many people want to talk to you, take a picture with you, etc. It's harder to find those moments of togetherness (alone) during the whole sha-bang of it all. So, doing the first look and just taking time to enjoy that it was finally our day was definitely the best part.

    The best part of our wedding day was seeing everyone. We were able to give enough notice that we had people from six countries and five states. It felt so good to have everyone in one spot.

    Oh and our food and beverages were on point. We were so excited to give our guests full bellys

    I am so excited to walk down the aisle (to marry the love of my life) — there is a huge sheer white curtain for the bride reveal at the beginning of the aisle and I think the moment is going to be magical ☺️
    And then coming in CLOSE 2nd is the epic dance party that will ensue courtesy of the open bar and my crazy family 😂

    For both of us, it was the ceremony. It was super personalized & unique to us, and we were so happy to finally be together.

    My wedding was yesterday 9/8/19 up until then I was most looking forward to the ceremony, but anytime someone would ask I would tell them “I can’t wait to party”😂.

    The ceremony was beautiful and everything that I imagined it would be, except for the unity candles cuz our priest said they weren’t mandatory and since we hadn’t purchased them yet I just got rid of the idea, but I was surprised at how much I actually enjoyed my reception.

    Funny Hubby would tell me he isn’t a dancer and he doesn’t wanna dance but I told him if not anything we have to at least dance our first together. I thought he was just being modest, I should have taken him up on his can we spend some time to practice request during planning🙄🙄🙄 boy oh boy if his arms were moving his feet weren’t and vice versa🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️I was helping him to lead me the whole time I hope it wasn’t to noticeable 😂. But he was alright and I still got him to dance to more than one song!

    Congratulations and good luck🎉🎉🎉

    I think I'm looking forward to the Spice of Life ceremony. It means so much that I'm having family and closest friends come up and add their appointed spice to our jar thereby adding their blessings to our union.
